Yeah, you can do it with the Tetenal kit (or equivalent, there's another one out there that may also be made by Tetenal, check B&H and Freestyle), which I've done. Not difficult. But if you get the kit, better plan on shooting a few more rolls of C41, as Graham suggests, to make it worthwhile.

My suggestion: the easiest way to do it without a lot of kit is a small Igloo cooler (or equivalent) and a few plastic bottles to hold the three chemicals, mixed from powder: color developer, blix, and stabilizer. Then you just fill the cooler with hot water slightly warmer than the instructions call for, put the bottles holding the mixed chemicals, and wait a bit for them to come up to temp. If your tap isn't set hot enough, just heat up some water in a tea kettle and mix it in. As long as the first couple chems are at temp to start, you should do OK.

Note: The chems are a bit stinky and stainy. Wear gloves.

Recently I started C-41 home development and finally I got CS-41 with simplifies all the temp thing.
My only concern is I don’t shoot as much color as I should to use the chems to the maximum and I always end up throwing away developer.

Thanks guys. She was super excited. I think she and I need to go for a walk somewhere and shoot a roll of film.

Forgot to mention, there was a roll of Kodak Gold 100 in the camera. Pretty sure Maddie opened the back but I’d like to at least see if there’s anything left on the film. Is there an easy way to process it at home, cheap, short of sending it out?
Cheap and easy, maybe the CineStill kit but sending out is probably cheaper
At least in the US you can get the film developed and scanned for $15

A bit late, the intercontinental twins!
Nikon F301 and N2000.
The F301 was bought in Germany in the late 80s by my aunt (with Vivitar zoom lenses), and I bought it form her in 96 and used the camera until the mid 00s.
The N2000 is a GoodWill find for less than $20

I also have a 301. I have always doubted that it was actually made by Nikon themselves. Maybe it's just the Doubting Thomas in me.

I love the F-301 and especially the autofocus F-501, which I had myself for a couple of months. I think the cooperation with Cosina is from a later date, with the advent of the FM-10 and the FE-10, which are really identical with the Cosinas. But one can never be sure about that sort of things.

Super Ricohflex

Post by GrahamS » Fri Jul 29, 2022 5:04 am

I have had this beauty for many years. It was a charity shop find for £5.00. I am ashamed to admit that I have never shot a folm with it, as I no longer have the means to develop the film. I will put 120 developing on my to-do list for this winter. By repute, the Ricoh Anastigmat f3.5 80mm is very good. The camera has a very solid feel. I will have to service the focussing system as it is very stiff.

That SuperRicohflex is a highly under-valuated camera
I bought one years ago as well, and it is a very good TLR
You have the 35mm counter, and with an adapter you could shoot 35mm.
I made an adapter for 3D printing which works fine
